What happens after joining?

After submitting your membership fees (via buttons above), there are a few more steps before you may begin work in the lab:

  1. Safety first: you will receive a link to our online safety quiz. You must achieve 100% on the quiz before passing.
  2. If you have a specific project in mind, email to make sure your project complies with our BSL-1 guidelines.
  3. When you drop by the lab in-person, you’ll need to fill out and sign a membership agreement.
  4. When you’ve completed safety training and had your project approved, you’re good to go! Note: BioCurious provides access to equipment and some basics like gloves, plastic ware, and goggles. Members must provide their own reagents.
